Ann Miller and Mickey Rooney

Sugar Babies, with a setting called the Gaiety Burlesque, revived classic vaudeville-era sketches, and used hit songs by Jimmy McHugh, Dorothy Fields, Al Dubin, Ted Koehler and others. It starred Mickey Rooney and Ann Miller (who were nominated for Tonys for their turns) in a run that began in October 1979 and ran 1,208 performances.
